Star Maze is a space-themed shooter taking place in a multidirectional scrolling maze,  written by Canadian programmer Gordon Eastman for the Apple II, based on a design by Robert Woodhead. Published by Sir-Tech in 1982.

The object of Star Maze is to collect nine jewels in a large, randomly generated, maze. The player is in a spaceship oriented by a joystick, one button on the joystick applies thrust, the other button shoots. A hyperspace key drops the ship in a random location in the maze, and a finite number of antimatter bombs destroy all visible enemies. The ship has limited fuel, and the hyperspace option uses a significant amount of it. A jewel can only be collected if the ship's speed is below a certain threshold, then the jewel can be flown to the mothership in exchange for additional fuel. There are 16 levels.
